Rowland Green


Proof that Mary Ann Green is dau of Rowland Green

Our Mary Ann Green married William Berwick in 1869. Unusually, her father is not listed on the marriage cert.
However, it can be worked out who she is.

The only way it could be someone else would be if Mary Ann was dau of William Green, who was a lot older. But the census shows William had no dau Mary.
Conclusion: Mary Ann must be the dau of Rowland Green, and sister of William and James, unless strong evidence emerges otherwise.


  
Rowland Green,
born 23 Aug 1798.
Lived Sporle, Norfolk.
See entry in tree by Simon Davis.
See entry in tree by "dierattenfanger".

He mar pre-1823 to Ann Whisker [born 1801 (by census age), Sporle].
Listed at Sporle in 1851 census. He is "agricultural labourer". See image. From here.
Listed at "Sporle Street", Sporle in 1861 census. He is "agricultural labourer". See image. From here.

Ann died 1874, Swaffham district, Norfolk.
(todo) See death of Ann Green, [GRO.UK], Swaffham, 1874, 3rd qr, age 73, vol 4b p 247.
Rowland died 26 Dec 1876, apparently Blofield district, Norfolk.
(todo) See death of "Rowling Green", [GRO.UK], 1877, 1st qr, age 76, Blofield, Volume: 4b, Page: 129.
Rowland and Ann had issue:


  1. William Hastings Green,
    William Green,
    born 1823 (by census age), Sporle.
    Married before 1846.


  2. James Green,
    born 1831.


  3. Abram Green,
    born 1832, Sporle.
    At home, age 19 in 1851 census. He is "agricultural labourer".

  4. King J. Green (son),
    born 1835, Sporle.
    Not at home in 1851 census.
    At home, age 26, unmarried, in 1861 census. He is "agricultural labourer".

  5. Judith Green,

    At home, age 10 in 1851 census.


  7. Mary Green,
    born 1847 (by census age), Sporle, mother age 46.
    Age 4 in 1851 census.
    Not at home in 1861 census.
    She must be Mary Green, born Sporle, age 15, "general servant", who is listed in 1861 census at a grocer's house at Holme Hale, Norfolk. See p.1 and p.2. From here.

    As explained above, we declare her identical with:

    Mary Ann Green,
    born 1847 (by census age), Sporle.
    Listed at mar as living East Dereham, Norfolk.
    She mar 18 Nov 1869, East Dereham parish church, to William Berwick and had issue.
    See banns from here.
    See mar cert from here.
    (todo) Is there a separate entry for the marriage in East Dereham parish records? Might list her father.
    Think not. Think the parish register was using the state format, and the mar cert is the entry.
